Chandra Levy Murder: Suspect Charged

The murder investigation of D.C. intern, Chandra Levy, may finally have come to a head. According to Superior Court documents, a complaint has been filed against, Ingmar Guandique, an illegal immigrant who has been charged with Levy’s murder.

The complaint accuses Guandique of First Degree Murder – Felony Murder, in violation of 22 D.C. Code.

Early after Levy’s disappearance, California congressman, Gary Condit, became the focus of suspicion after it was discovered that Condit had a romantic relationship with Levy, who was his intern at the time.

The case took a turn after new detectives and prosecutors spoke with witnesses who confirmed Guandique told them he had attacked and killed Levy.

A search of his prison cell (he was already serving 10 years for attacking two other women) produced a picture of Levy that appeared to be torn from a magazine.

Guandique allegedly boasted to a witness that he was a member of the Salvadoran gang MS-13 and known as Chuckie because he had a reputation for cutting up people.

It’s been almost eight years since Levy left apartment in May 2001 and was never heard from again. Her body was found one year later, May 22, 2002.
